Ward Village Architecture #3

Ward Village Architecture - Honolulu, Hawaii

Ward Village Architecture – Honolulu, Hawaii

For my last picture of Ward Village Architecture, I feature a visually complex street near the northern boundary of the development. We have a cantilevered structure, textured facades, and a modern tower in the distance. I happened on this as I walked the neighborhood.

I’ve reconstructed this angle to determine that I’m looking down Halekauwila Street. The cantilevered tower is the Ae’o. The high-rise in the distance is the Anaha. Two of the nearly a dozen Condos will eventually fill out Ward Village.

All of the texture and landscaping, however, can not adequately disguise the massive two-story blank wall on the right. That’s the backside of the Ward Entertainment Center. There is no ground-level interest or pedestrian-friendly accommodations. With only a couple of garage entrances, it’s a dead zone. Not ideal for such an upscale development.
